LAND O’LAKES — At Academy at the Lakes, there are no district titles to speak of.

But when the Wildcats claimed the A-9 district crown Tuesday evening at Plantation Palms, it seemed like no surprise to coach Peggy Crowley and her girls.

“It’s a very exciting time for the girls,” Crowley said. “The girls have worked very hard and some of them have improved a lot in a short amount of time.”

Academy at the Lakes shot 488 as a team, with Wesley Chapel second at 523 and Anclote third at 689.

Academy at the Lakes was led by junior Ellen Crowley, who shot a team-best 14-over 86. Also doing well for Academy at the Lakes were Anna Fornelli (88) and Paulina Agudelo (146).

Saddlebrook’s Lauren Riehle took first among individuals, shooting 5-over 77.

“I think I did solid today,” Riehle said. “Overall, I’m not happy with my score because I think I could have done much better if not for a couple shots.”

Other notables on the day were Wesley Chapel’s Hana Lee, who tied Crowley for second among individuals with 86 and Savana Bischoff (107).
